Masses of large lavender flowers with a maroon lip and golden throat accented with maroon nectar guides are a 'wow' factor and when the strong fragrance that only Cattleya orchids can produce is added in the plant is a show stopper. Cattleya orchids grow and flower best in bright light conditions with high humidity and frequent misting of the foliage and roots. Plants under artificial lights in winter can be moved outdoors once the temperatures have warmed enough to plant tomatoes in the ground. The foliage will yellow if nitrogen levels are not increased while outdoors through foliar fertilization.
